Have anybody here tried this new shaving cream?How is the scent?What about its ingredients? I would like to know your impressions of it if you have tried it.
Thanks.

Hey Teiste, I'm waiting on a tub of this in the mail, so if nobody chimes in before mine gets here I'll be more than happy to post some pics and thoughts.
FWIW - I've heard it's much more mild than some of the other TOBS scents.

Nice Brian,I would love to read your experience with it.
It seems like another scent for hot/summer days,with Limes.

How strong is the scent? Like GFT or the usual TOBS strength (strong!)?

I wonder if it's because Trumpers Coconut is so highly regarded, and most of the coconut fans either have that or Mystic Waters already?

I should be able to have my hands on a TOBS Coconut next week so if ingredients aren't up by then I'll post something and a few words on scent. Stay tuned.

I believe both are made by Creighton's so performance should be similar. Scent is another matter.

I used it a couple of days ago. It goes without saying that being a Taylor cream, the lather and performance were top notch, no disappointment there! The fragrance was my main interest, because I really like coconut, in most cases. When I first opened the tub, the fragrance reminded me of a freshly cracked coconut. After it was lathered and applied to my face, I can say it is not too strong, not sweet, and Taylor gave me just what I was looking for, fresh coconut!

You might try The Shave Den Store. Joanna used to sell samples of TOBS and a few others. If she does, that's the way to go.

Mine just arrived today!

At first impression, this TOBS coconut offers a "refined suntan lotion" scent, as opposed to the GFT "freshly cracked" version.

I'm really enjoying the scent out of the tub, I'll be back to report on the shave later tonight! Wink

And Teiste, here's a quick and dirty snapshot of the ingredients:

Nice Brian,thank you so much!
So what scent do you like better,the GFT or the TOBS?
Well,it seems that the cream is basically the same than the GFT but no parabens on it.

Great question! I had a great shave with my new TOBS tonight. I'm planning a shave with the GFT tomorrow, followed by a "half and half" to compare notes side by side.

As far as scents are concerned, my initial impressions from above hold true. I'm glad the tobs is more "suntan lotion" and the gft is more "pure coconut", because it makes it easy to have them both around. If they were differentiated any less I think their performance may have them in more of an either or situation.

Hold off on that for a few Dave, and I'll see that some of mine finds its way to Lutrell.
